(Today and Tonight)
Warmer weather compared to the past few nights is noted in the area
observations early this morning, as 2 am temperatures were mainly in
the upper 30s to upper 40s. Satellite imagery indicated scattered
high clouds south of the Big Country streaming in from the west,
while clear skies were occurring elsewhere.
The main feature affecting our weather through tonight will be a
cold front moving down from the north beginning late this afternoon.
Breezy southerly winds in advance of the front will result in
pleasant temperatures today, with highs in the 65-71 degree range
forecast and partly cloudy skies. Models are in pretty good
agreement with the front moving into the Big Country late this
afternoon, then down into the Concho Valley and Heartland around
midnight, and finally into the I-10 corridor around 3 am Sunday. As
a result, we'll see increased clouds, cooler overnight lows (low to
mid 30s in the Big Country, mid to upper 30s in the Concho Valley
and Heartland, and upper 30s to low 40s elsewhere), and a slight
chance of light showers late in the night over the Northwest Hill
Country and Heartland.
(Sunday through Saturday)
Sunday's high temperatures will be about 20 degrees colder than
Saturday's as a result of the previously mentioned cold front. In
fact, another morning with freezing temperatures is possible
Monday morning across the Big Country. Otherwise, a chance for
rain returns to the region during the middle part of the week.
However, uncertainty remains rather high so chances will remain
low at 30 percent.
